I am getting this error message "The host's WMI system is returning invalid data: in class Win32_LogicalDisk - f: FreeSpace f: Size (code: PE098)"

On the device, I have enabled WMI. Why am I getting this error?

It's external hard disk, WD Passport

The error message is indicating that whatever that host machine is sending us is erroneous data. I would imagine because it's a portable hard drive.

If you want to turn on Write Sensor Result to Disk in the Settings tab under Result Handling, we can see what it's sending us.

Masmi,

Can I ask you to try using our WMI Tester for this machine?

https://www.paessler.com/tools/wmitester

There is an option in the tester for disks. Please run it, and send the results.

Thanks!

Please check file system permission on volume root folder for wmi user.

This was reason for this error in my case.

Kind regards, Chris
